Scotty McCreery got a great call for the “American Idol” finale duet. He got to sing “Live Like You Were Dying” with country superstar Tim McGraw. And despite wanting to push Scotty off the screen just so we could see Tim sing (kidding, kidding), we thought it was really good!

“Live Like You Were Dying” was definitely the type of single Scotty should release (as opposed to the awful “I Love You This Big” from the final performances). It was no Jack Black/Casey Abrams on “Fat Bottomed Girls,” but it was pretty great.

Would you buy a single from Scotty like this Tim McGraw classic? We have a feeling he’s about to be the next “American Idol,” so we’re sure we’ll have plenty of country songs on his debut album to pick from.
